[PyQt] Building sip for x64 on windows

I am attempting to build qt-5.14.2, python-3.6.4, sip-4.19.19, and PyQt5-13.1 on Windows.

I built qt and python for x64, but sip only seems to want to build for x32 as shown in the following linker output. The only references to the token “arch” in configure.py are for Darwin. How can I configure sip to build for x64?
